Wing's primary research examines the way that occupational regulations shape the way that different types of workers are used to provide health services. For example, he has examined how the regulation of nurse practitioners, dental hygienists, and pharmacists affect the cost and availability of basic health services such as well care visits, teeth cleanings and fillings, and vaccinations.

In other work, Wing studies the health and economic welfare of veterans. Some of his current work in is concerned with the effects of military recruitment policies on the skills that people acquire during military service, and with the geographical variation in obesity among veterans served by the Veteran's Health Administration.

More broadly, Wing studies the methodological and substantive conditions under which quasi-experimental research designs appear to reproduce the results of randomized experiments.
